It is a fact ! If you’ve got a boat, it’s a target for some form of corrosive activity. Every boat in every marina, every bay, every outboard, every inboard and every boat trailer in every carport, corrodes at a different rate. Tailoring your maintenance to suit the circumstance of your boat and engine is vital but, first you have to understand the enemy, or to be more exact the enemies – including electrolysis, galvanic corrosion and oxidation. Improper wiring or a defective electrical device can cause a process called “electrolysis” which can set off corrosion. When dissimilar metals are immersed in an electrolyte (example saltwater) this can generate an electrical current in much the same way as a fluid battery. This can cause “galvanic corrosion” while rust, or more accurately “oxidation”, results from oxygen combining with exposed metals to form an oxide which becomes acidic.
Unfortunately, the problem, of corrosion can only limited, not prevented. It is important that issues with corrosion be addressed as part of a regular maintenance schedule. As a minimum, when your boat and outboard or inboard engines are serviced, do an inspection of the sacrificial anodes. Other limiting treatments includes inhibiting applications such as Volvo Penta Neutra-Salt. Items classed as hazardous materials such as paint, aerosols, oils and lubricant will not be shipped to a Post Office Box. Items classed as hazardous materials will only be shipped by road freight.
